About This Listing
A special place for family, friends and Seminars
Podere Palazzina is a Tuscan-style, about 400 years old house, that has been restored completely to its original heritage.
It lies in a little valley by itself with a beautiful view over the hills of the Fiora Valley. Due to its central position it is situated within short reach of numerous interesting touristic and historic attractions. It is the place to have unforgettable excursions.
The thick walls made of "Tufo" and the floor heating throughout the house, supported by solar panels, assure a pleasant climate. For celebrations and seminars the recently restored 'Stalla' is at your disposal. The old pizza oven and the tuff-stone caves complement the ambience. In the large, well-equipped kitchen, the delicacies of the Maremma can be prepared.
Podere Palazzina is surrounded by Etruscan scenery, Lake Bolsena and the Tyrrhenian Sea. The Tuff-Stone towns of Pitigliano, Sorano and Sovana, located on high plateaus, and their Etruscan sites, are characteristic for this region. Driving to the beach on Lake Bolsena tales ca.15min. The drive to the Tyrrhenian Sea (about 1 hour) takes you through spectacular scenic areas. Visit the 'Terme di Saturnia', the Terme di Sorano or the wild hot springs that lie in open nature. On the wine trail of 'Strada del Vino' you can try local products such as DOC Wines and the best olive oils of Tuscany. Well worth is a trip to the 'Underground Orvieto'. The visit of the Maremma National Park is an unforgettable highlight.
